Chocolate Cupcakes with Rose Water Frosting – Chokladcupcakes med Rosenvatten Frosting

IMG_5403

I’ve realized over the past days working through my recipe index how my baking has changed, partly because after a while, all your traditional go to bakes has been uploaded, and you’re challenged to try new things. This led me to buy some rose water extract on bottle. I had never before used rose water up until a couple of days ago – but I’m already a fan. If you put it in cakes, they become extremely moist and soft (keep your eye’s out for a recipe coming soon), and the flavor is just something new and different. The cupcakes I used a regular chocolate cupcake recipe for, and the frosting recipe I found on this blog, although I added some more cream and rose water to mine, since I believed it was a little too thick before. Sprinkled with silver sprinkles and glittering stars, these would be perfect in a fairy tale.
